Allison Holker has officially been granted half of her late husband’s earnings nearly five months after his death last December.
Holker, who was married to Stephen “tWitch” Boss and share two children together, Maddox and Zaia, filed her request for the Spousal Property Petition earlier this year in the Los Angeles County Supreme Court.
Boss died without a will.
Though California’s laws say that surviving spouses of their deceased spouse are entitled to half of their earnings, the surviving spouse is still required to file the petition in order to prove they are in fact the spouse of the deceased.
According to the court documents, per ET, Holker was granted “property passing” rights, adding that “no administration of it is necessary”.
This means she is entitled to half of tWitch’s interest in his shares of Stephen Boss Productions, Inc., as well as his investment accounts in Goldman Sachs and his royalties in GEP Talent Services, Disney Worldwide Services, Inc., SAG/AFTRA and Cast and Crew Production Services.
On December 13, 2022, Boss died by suicide, taking the entire entertainment world and his fanbase by shock. Holker has spoken out about his tragic death numerous times and discussed how she’s going to carry on his legacy and do her best at raising their children by herself.
Holker has taken to social media many times since his passing showing how she’s spending time with her children and making sure their mind states are secure.
Most recently, on Sunday, she posted to Instagram a collection of photos of her and her kids, Maddox and Zaia, attending the brand new Super Nintendo World in Universal Studios Hollywood in California.
“Beautiful memories being created,” she captioned the post. They also stopped by Harry Potter World during their visit.
There’s no telling how a parent and spouse should carry on without their other half, but it seems like Allison is doing her best.
ORIGINAL ARTICLE: Allison Holker, wife to the late Stephen “tWitch” Boss, has taken to California court to discuss how to handle her and Boss’ joint estate after the So You Think You Can Dance alum died without a will.
Boss died last December by suicide at the age of 40.
According to the documents obtained by ET, Holker has filed a California Spousal Property Petition in LA. This is standard for situations like this. It simply is a petition that a spouse files to prove they are indeed the spouse to the person who died.
The filing states that Holker is requesting “determination of property passing to the surviving spouse” and “confirmation of property belonging to the surviving spouse”.
People reports that in regards to what she is requesting, part of the document reads, “This includes any interest in a trade or business name of any unincorporated business or an interest in any unincorporated business that the deceased partner was operating or managing at the time of death.”
To be clear, Allison is not asking for “administration over Stephen’s estate”. Per People, the following is what Allison is filing for regarding Boss’ estate:
- Stephen’s half of Stephen Boss Productions and Goldman Sachs investment account
- Royalties from Cast and Crew Production Services
- Disney Worldwide Services, Inc.
- GEP Talent Services, LLC
It must be a difficult process for Holker to go through—as it would be for anyone in her situation—having to discuss legalities and determine investment plans during a time when she and her children are inevitably still mourning the loss of someone as beloved as Boss.
The world is still thinking about the life of the late talented dancer and DJ.
On Sunday, during the 2023 Grammys, Boss was honored during rapper Quavo’s performance as part of the “In Memoriam” segment of the award show. As he was performing, a black and white photo of Boss appeared on the screen above the stage.
Boss’ mother, Connie Boss Alexander, posted to her Instagram Story a snapshot of the tribute, writing, “It will never seem real. I miss you! I love you to infinity and beyond. Keep shining bright for us!”
Allison’s Instagram has also been nothing but reminiscent photos and videos of her and Stephen when he was still here with us. Most of the videos are of them dancing, an activity they both cherished, something in which Allison says in one of the videos was their “love language”.
